About this item

A love letter to bookshops all around the world, from the author of Weird Things Customers Say in BookstoresWe're not talking about rooms that are just full of books. We're talking about bookshops in barns, disused factories, converted churches, and underground car parks. Bookshops on boats, on buses, and in old run-down train stations. Fold-out bookshops, undercover bookshops, this-is-the-best-place-I've-ever-been-to-bookshops. Meet Sarah and her Book Barge sailing across the sea to France; meet Sebastien, in Mongolia, who sells books to herders of the Altai mountains; meet the bookshop in Canada that's invented the world's first antiquarian book vending machine. And that's just the beginning. From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine,The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favorite places, and looks at more than 300 weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we've yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole).The Bookshop Book includes interviews and quotes from David Almond, Ian Rankin, Tracy Chevalier, Audrey Niffenegger, Jacqueline Wilson, Jeanette Winterson, and many, many others.
